Our Mission

Our Mission
It is our wish that no animal endures the pain and suffering of a life of abandonment and neglect. It is our mission to rescue the mistreated, save the injured and love the abandoned. We strive to build a community that promotes compassion and seeks to strengthen the human-animal bond. Using education, proper vetting, science-based training methods and quality nutrition our goal is to adopt rescued dogs to a well matched forever family.

Adoption Policy

Adoption Process

1. Please read the dog's bio very carefully. Applications are not considered on a first come first serve bases, but rather on the most suitable match for the dog.

2. Complete an adoption application. Be thorough in your answers.

3. One of our directors will reach out to you within 2-3 business days via email to discuss your application or book a phone interview.

4. If the phone interview is successful and both parties feel the dog and applicant are a good match, you will be offered a meet and greet at your home (as well as a home inspection). We will also call your references at this time.

5. If the meet and greet goes well, we will proceed with a trial adoption according to the dogs needs.
